Praise for Attention!
"Face it. Nobody remembers bland, vanilla marketing. Attitude is what you need for your business to stand out and make money. Get Attention! This Book Will Make You Money because . . . well . . . this book WILL make you money."
—Anita Campbell, founder, SmallBizTrends.com
"Are you ready to stand out and get your business the attention it deserves? Then there's only one thing to do: buy this book.

—Mark Cuban, owner, Dallas Mavericks; investor and entrepreneur; Chairman of HDNet
"Jim Kukral has sent us a clear message about the vital and increasingly important role that attention plays in our lives. We'd all be wise to pay close attention to that message."
—Robert B. Cialdini, New York Times bestselling business author of Influence: Science and Practice
"If you listened to your friends and neighbors about what to do in business, you would probably fail. It would be all the middle-of-the-road, tried-and-false stuff. If you read Attention! This Book Will Make You Money and tried just a couple of these things, you will probably succeed. Take the success route—it's a lot more fun. Buy this book."
—Jon Spoelstra, author of Marketing Outrageously

What I appreciate most about this book is that the author did a tremendous amount of research into attention-getting marketing techniques. There are countless case studies, plus a few exclusive interviews with successful business owners.
Unfortunately, I found the book to be very light on practical ways to generate attention for an online business. While there are a few useful marketing tips, most of them are sales psychology 101, and have already been discussed in a number of other books on the subject.
What should have been the best chapter - 26 Ways to Generate Killer Ideas - was honestly a big disappointment. The author suggests things like climbing stairs to get your brain going, doodling on paper, taking a shower, listening to music, and even wearing a silly hat to establish a routine for coming up with business ideas.
As far as fun and inspirational reading goes, I couldn't have asked for a better book. I have yet to come across a similar work with as many case studies and examples as this one. The problem is that even though it encourages the reader to think outside of the box, the book rarely offers practical methods for coming up with killer ideas.
So while I don't think the book would offer any new ideas to experienced internet marketers, I'm still glad that I bought it. It's a fun read that shows you what's possible in business when you think outside of the box.
I'm very surprised of the rating of this book. It's not the worst one, but I wouldn't give it to serious, determined individual wanting to learn about entrepreneurship.
Buy this book, dig in and put these ideas to work. Jim's collection of ideas and practices is relevant, real-time, and real-world applicable. His approach to dealing with the media is spot on, I've had the exact same experiences. Keep in mind, I am only 62 pages in, and had to take a moment to let you all know what I think already!
If you're starting, tweeking, growing, or selling a business, this book is a must for understanding how to get your message out there quickly and effectively!
I loved reading all the stories of wacky, crazy, outlandish things people have done to get attention. From huge marketing heavyweights to small marketers who have made a name for themselves in their niche, Jim has included case studies that will resonate with anyone.
If you're looking for creative ways to get the word about about your business, you owe it to yourself to grab a copy of Attention! This Book Will Make You Money
